Description Ken Gordon 2019-12-06 05:11:57 UTC
I have burned at least three ISOs to disk, and/or flash drive, repeatedly, have adjusted the BIOS in two computers to choose whatever it takes to boot from, and every time, from both computers, I get an error message "Unable to find file boot/lua/loader.lua", yet looking at the DVDs or CDs I have made, it IS there. 

I have downloaded the files both via Firefox, and by using FileZilla, and BINARY and the same thing results every time. I have used both Nero and a freeware ISOBurner.

I have burnt the .IMG file to flashdrive at least three times, and the only directory that shows up is one labeled efi.

I know both computers will boot from a flashdrive, because I have an issue of Ubuntu on one and it works in both.

So far, no joy.

Any help?
